Toy started as a duo of Yoo Hee-yeol and Yoon Jeong-oh and was named after their two initials 'Y', as in Two + Y = Toy.
But after releasing Toy's first album, Yoon Jeong-oh left the band to study overseas and Yoo Hee-yeol joined the navy for his mandatory military service. Yoo Hee-yeol has been the sole member of Toy since 1996.

In 1997, he released the third album Present and also started a record label named Toy Music (currently Antenna Music). After a six-year hiatus, in 2007 Toy released the sixth album Thank You with the title song '뜨거운 안녕(A Passionate Goodbye)' featuring vocals by E Z Hyoung.
